The Contortionist, Nothing More to team up for 2018 tour

Posted by on November 7, 2017

The Contortionist really stepped up their game on this year’s Clairvoyant. Heavy and progressive, but also melodic and accessible, it’s music that begs for a wider audience than the admittedly wide metal audience they already have. And now it seems like that’s about to happen. The band have announced that they’ll be heading out on the […]

Metal By Numbers 10/8: Marilyn Manson has a heavenly debut

Posted by on October 18, 2017

Metal by Numbers 10/4: Even Mastodon’s EPs sell

Posted by on October 4, 2017

  While we cover a solid handful of hard rock (like, y’know, Foo Fighters) along with the metal, there’s no reason for us to cover other types of rock that’s less guitar-driven. However, it should be noticed that the umbrella of “rock” has landed a solid amount of #1 albums this year. The Killers just […]

Metal by Numbers 9/27: Foos, Nothing More, The Contortionist debut high

Posted by on September 28, 2017

There’s been some debate about whether or not we should include Foo Fighters in Metal by Numbers. Are they metal? No, and we’re pretty sure they’d be the first to tell you that.
